Buena Vistaâ€™s original church was constructed in the early 18th century, not long after the founding of the Jesuit Mission in 1694. It was built by Friar Martin Schmid, the architect behind many of the churches in the Chiquitania. The church that stands today is a modern reconstruction, but some original elements still remain.
The main plaza is the heart of village life in Buena Vista. Peace, tranquil and full of greenery itâ€™s the perfect place to shade from the midday sun and take in the chilled out vibe. Along its north-eastern side, in front of the church, thereâ€™s a landscaped walkway complete with a large wooden cross and lots of colorful ferns.
